Graduate Programs

In addition to offering traditional Masters and Doctoral degrees in nearly every field of Mathematics, the School participates in several interdisciplinary graduate programs in collaboration with other units on campus. At any given time, we train over 80 PhD and 30 Masters students, as well as several visiting graduate students from all over the world. Our graduate programs are designed so that students will not only obtain a broad perspective in advanced mathematics, through a solid foundation of fundamental courses, but also are exposed to the contemporary applications of mathematics in other disciplines. With about 30 graduate courses offered each Fall and Spring semester, not to mention numerous seminars and colloquia, there is always something of interest for everyone.

Doctoral Programs

The School of Math offers a comprehensive PhD program in Mathematics, as well as four interdisciplinary PhD programs: Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO); Computational Sciences and Engineering (CSE); Bioinformatics (BINF); and Quantitative Biosciences (QBios).

Masters Programs

In addition to an MS program in Mathematics, the School of Math offers three interdisciplinary MS programs: Computational Sciences and Engineering (CSE); Quantitative and Computational Finance (QCF); and Statistics.
